Urgh: being organised. Who manages it? The whole idea of a Mums Organiser just makes me feel like a complete half-wit who can’t even source a decent pair of elasticated-waist trousers. (Why Mums? I don’t know who should feel sidelined or patronised the most – mums (so hopelessly disorganised they require their own stationery? or, alternatively, the only kind of adult trusted with organisation?), dads, those without children (whether thankfully or otherwise), grandparents? Or maybe these lucky people are just tip-tapping their dentists appts into their ipads and merrily remembering everything at a touch of a screen…)
But hey ho, rant over – there’s not getting away from the fact that I need some organising so here are two products I’ve found recently that should help me on my way….
Cachette is a French-based company selling an interesting mix of interiors products – do take a look – I love their product selection; great for a ‘where did you get that’ present. Their wall planner (above) is both practical and attractive – (quite an achievement – take a moment to search for others and you’ll see what I mean).
I’ve also spent far too much time this week putting off working by browsing the lovely Nordic Elements site: I think this magnetic steel organiser was created for children’s rooms but I love its design, with its romantic St Basils-esque turrets. Nordic Elements is a great place for sourcing excellent Scandinavian design (which we all know we can’t get enough of right now, here in the UK). Happy organising!
